MASONS THE TRUTH 
SECRETS OF A SECRET SOCIETY 



Freemasonry, although it's leaders strenuously deny it, is a secret society. 
In England and Wales it has more than 600,000 initiates; a further 
100,000 in Scotland and between 50,000 and 70,000 in Ireland. All the 
members of this Brotherhood are male, and all except those who are 
second, third, or fourth, generation Freemasons - who may join at eighteen 
- are over the age of twenty-one. Freemason ry's critics have described it as 
a business cult, a satanic religion, and a political conspiracy. Defenders of 
Freemasonry tell us it is nothing more than a benevolent and charitable 
fraternal brotherhood. 

The headquarters of the Brotherhood in England and Wales is in London, 
at the corner of Great Queen Street and Wild Street. This is the seat of the 
"United Grand Lodge of England 1 , the governing body of the 8,000-plus 
Lodges in England and Wales. These Lodges, of which there are another 
1,200-odd under the jurisdiction of the "Grand Lodge of Scotland 1 and 
about 750 under the "Grand Lodge of Ireland 1 , carry out their secret 
business and ritual in Masonic Temples. Temples might be purpose built, 
or might be rooms in hotels or private buildings temporarily converted for 
Masonic use. Many town halls up and down the country, for example, have 
private function rooms used for Masonic rituals, as does New Scotland 
Yard - headquarters of the Metropolitan Police and home to the "Animal 
Rights National Index" (ARNI) and Special Branch. 

Debate about Freemasonry in the Police began in 1877 with the 
sensational discovery that virtually every member of the Detective 
Department at Scotland Yard, up to and including the second-in- 
command, was in the pay of a gang of vicious swindlers. The corruption 
had started in 1872 when, at a Lodge meeting in Islington, J ohn 
Meiklejohn - a Freemason - was introduced to a criminal called William 
Kurr (Kurr had then been a Freemason for some years). One night the two 
Masonic brothers exchanged intimacies. Kurr was operating a bogus 
"betting agency 1 swindle and was sorely in need of an accomplice within 
the force to warn him as and when the Detective Department had 
sufficient information against him to move in. Meiklejohn agreed to accept 



£100.00, nearly half his annual salary, to supply information. In forces all 
over England, Freemasonry is strongest in the Criminal Investigation 
Department (CID). This had been particularly noticeable at Scotland Yard, 
and the situation remains the same today. Between 1969 and the setting- 
up of the famous Operation Countryman in 1978 there were three big 
investigations into corruption in the Metropolitan Police. These were: 

(1) An enquiry into allegations of corruption and extortion by Police, 
first published in The Times. This resulted in the arrest, trial 
and imprisonment of two London detectives in 1972. 

(2) An enquiry by Lancashire Police into members of the 
Metropolitan Police Drug Squad. This led to the trial of six 
detectives, and the imprisonment in 1973 of three of them. 

(3) An enquiry into allegations of corruption among CID officers 
responsible for coping with vice and pornography in London's 
West End. Over twenty detectives were sacked from the force 
during the three- year investigation in the early 1970's, which led 
eventually to the notorious Porn Squad trials. There were 
corrupt Masonic Policemen involved in all these cases. 

According to anti-Masonic books to be re-published, and some modern 
works, Freemasonry was formed and continues to work to "dupe the 
simple for the benefit of the crafty" (p. 33, Proceedings of the US Anti- 
Masonic Convention, 1830). The Freemasonic value system and 
organisational structure can be used to conceal both immoral and illegal 
acts but, its members derive benefit from the Brotherhood only so long as 
the status quo is maintained. Inside the Brotherhood: Further secrets of 
the Freemasons, by Martin Short, carries on Stephen Knight's research 
into modern English Freemasonry and gives additional information on 
American Freemasonry. "Relying on first-hand evidence wherever possible, 
the book examines the extent to which Masonic oaths of mutual aid and 
secrecy have contaminated the fraternity, aroused mounting hostility from 
churches, politicians and public, and provoked charges of corruption in 
key areas of the law, local government, education, the medical profession, 
business, the armed forces, the Civil Service, and the secret services."

INITIATION 

Initiation into the various secret societies - the Freemasons being one of, if 
not the, most familiar, and the one referred to throughout this article - is 
relatively easy these days. Potential initiates are hand-picked and invited 
to join, tempted with the promise that, once accepted into the 
organisation, many personal advantages would be on offer: improved 
career prospects with promotion easier to achieve, more prosperous 



lifestyles, and obstacles to success would be made to disappear. In other 
words this mutually beneficial "old boy network" would take care of its 
own. 

The vast majority of members are on the first three rungs of the 33 level 
hierarchy and have no idea of the hidden agenda. Once initiated into the 
lowest level - the first of the 33 degrees - vows are taken to pledge 
allegiance to the society above all else. Most initiates are willing to do this 
as the temptation of power, wealth, and knowledge is hard to refuse. It is 
hinted that there are penalties to pay for betraying their society and 
revealing its secrets, but at this level the organisation is viewed by its 
members as little more than a secretive social club with a morality based 
on chivalry. What appear to be certain esoteric secrets, are revealed to 
them upon initiation as a "taster 1 of what is to come as long as they remain 
faithful. Money is then paid by the initiate in order to progress to the 
second degree through a ceremony involving the revelation of yet further 
secret knowledge with the promise of more to come at each stage. Initiation 
into higher degrees requires increasingly larger sums of money and still 
the clues keep coming. Promises of wonderful arcane knowledge are 
continual yet the actual knowledge revealed remains encoded and only 
serves to whet the appetite. No one is ever given the full scenario, only 
pieces of what appears to be a picture of the most awesome significance. 
As more and more is revealed and the higher up the ladder the initiate is 
allowed, the greater are the perks provided and doorways opened in terms 
of career and social status. Moreover, the warnings against transgression 
of the secret society's rules become blatant and more sinister at each 
step.lt is impossible to achieve high levels of initiation within Freemasonry 
unless one is hand-picked by those of the higher degrees. In order to 
qualify, one must meet their criteria of wealth, status, social class, and 
character type. By the time the twentieth degree is reached a minimum of 
professional level income is required to fund progression through the 
system. The result of this financially dependent progression is that the top 
level members of the Brotherhood elite are among the richest, and most 
powerfully influential in the world. They are also responsible, directly and 
indirectly, for most of the money/ power based crime such as the illegal 
drugs industry, political assassinations, Satanism, and mind control, 
which goes on every day all around the world. 

J ack the Ripper: The Final Solution, by Stephen Knight, produced 
evidence the Ripper murders were a Masonic cover-up involving the 
highest levels of British government and the monarchy. An important 
investigative effort suggesting the levels of influence at which the senior 
members of the freemasonic brotherhood operate and their indifference to 
the bounds of law. Acacia 



BARRISTERS AND J UDGES 



To understand why Freemasonry is so powerful in the law, it is helpful to 
be familiar with the distinct roles of the two branches of the legal 
profession. The barrister is the only member of the profession who has the 
right of audience in any court in the country. Whereas solicitors may be 
heard only in Magistrates Courts, County Courts, and in certain 
circumstances Crown Courts, a barrister can present and argue a client's 
case in all these as well as in the High Court, the Court of Appeal, and the 
House of Lords. But unlike the solicitor, the barrister cannot deal with the 
client direct. Contact between client and barrister is always supposed to be 
through the solicitor, although this does not always work out in practice. 
The etiquette of the profession demands that the solicitor, not the client, 
instructs the barrister. Thus the barrister is dependent on the solicitor for 
his living. In England, the rank of barrister-at-law is conferred exclusively 
by four unincorporated bodies in London, known collectively as the 
Honourable Societies of the Inns of Court. The four Inns, established 
between 1310 and 1357, are Lincoln's Inn, Grays Inn, the Middle Temple 
and the Inner Temple. 

Prior to the establishment of the latter two Inns, "The Temple", which lies 
between Fleet Street and the River Thames, was the headquarters of the 
Xnights Templar' - a Christian/ military order who gained staggering 
riches and a wealth of esoteric knowledge between the eleventh and 
thirteenth centuries, but were declared heretics by King Philip IV of France 
and wiped out during the early fourteenth century. The Knights Templars 
went on to become the Freemasons, (whose symbol is a red cross or rose 
on a white background, representing blood and semen in Satanic ritual) 
and the modern day "Order of the Knights Templar' within British 
Freemasonry claims direct decent from the medieval order. Each Inn is 
owned by its Honourable Society, has its own library, dining-hall, and 
chapel, and is governed by its own senior members - barristers and judges 
- who are known as Benchers. The Benchers decide which students will be 
called to the Bar (made barristers that is) and which will not. Their 
decision is final. As with so much else in British Law, ancient customs 
attend the passage of students to their final examinations and admission. 
Candidates must of course pass examinations, which are set by the 
Council for Legal Education, (see MASONS IN MEDICINE, EDUCATION 
AND PUBLIC SERVICES), but in addition they must N keep twelve terms'. In 
everyday language this means that on a set number of occasions in each 
legal term (Hilary, Easter, Trinity and Michelmas) for three years, 
candidates must dine at their Inn. If they do so without fail, pass their 
exams and pay their fees they will then be called, and the degree, or rank, 
of barrister-at-law will be bestowed upon them. Solicitors, especially those 
outside London, have a particular incentive for becoming Freemasons. By 
the rules of their profession they are forbidden to advertise. They are 
therefore reliant on passing trade, which is often sparse, and 
recommendation, which is hard to get. Solicitors join Freemasonry purely 
to get on close terms with the businessmen and worthies of their 



community, and to gain personal contact with Police, J Ps, magistrate's 
clerks and any local or visiting members of the judiciary - men they could 
rely upon either to put business their way or whose good offices they 
would be professionally valuable. 

From the beginning the men of law were linked with Freemasonry. The 
term "Masonic firm 1 is used more often in the law than in any other 
profession. This is because there is a greater preponderance of companies 
which are exclusively run by members of the Brotherhood in this area of 
society than elsewhere. It refers to those firms of solicitors whose senior 
partners are, without exception and as part of a deliberate policy, 
Freemasons. In such firms, and this is equally true in London as in the 
Provinces, most of the junior partners will also be N on the square 1 . 

Some Masonic firms will not allow the possibility of a non-Masonic 
partner. In these cases only existing brethren will betaken on. In some 
larger Masonic firms there will be one, perhaps two, of the junior partners 
who are not Masons. These non-Masons generally never even suspect the 
secret allegiance of their fellow partners. At a certain stage in their career 
they might receive an approach from one of the Brothers within the firm - 
not a blunt invitation to join, but a subtle implantation of an idea, a 
curtain twitched gently aside. Usually if this is passed over nothing further 
will occur. If it is recognised and rebuffed, the non-Mason will probably be 
actively looking for a partnership elsewhere shortly afterwards, as work 
becomes unaccountably more demanding and as he finds he no longer 
seems to measure up to the standard expected of him. 

In summary, according to Freemasonry's critics, Freemasonry is a 
brotherhood or more aptly a cult which mandates secrecy and obedience 
within its ranks, affords protection and advancement of the interests of its 
members, punishes its enemies and turns a blind eye to criminal 
behaviour committed by its members against non members. Freemasonry 
provides a value system and an organisational structure which works to 
put brother Freemasons in positions of power in all organisations and can 
be used by its members for the most immoral and illegal purposes. Its 
foundation appears to rest upon the willingness of its members to selfishly 
exchange their ethics for personal advantage. Its strength appears to lie in 
a pervasive presence, unseen by those outside the brotherhood, working in 
concert to protect and expand their wealth and power. Acacia. 

LOCAL AUTHORITIES 

Almost every local authority in the country has it's own Freemasonic 
Lodge, the temple often situated actually within the Town or County Hall. 
These local government Lodges are known variously as (a) "Borough 
Lodge', (b) "County Lodge', (c) Town Hall Lodge', or (d) "Council Lodge', 
depending where they are. In London alone there are no fewer than 



twenty-four Lodges which from their names in the Masonic Year Book can 
be identified as being based on local authorities. There are at least as 
many again in Greater London whose identity is cloaked under a classical 
or other obscuring title like "Harmony 1 . In addition to these there are the 
Lodges based upon the City of London Corporation, and Lodge No. 2603 
for officers and members of what was formerly known as the Greater 
London Council (GLC), originally consecrated as the London County 
Council Lodge in 1896. In the provinces, most County Councils and 
District councils and many Parish Councils have their own Lodge. One 
thing is clear, the vast majority of councillors and officials join these 
Lodges, rather than a Lodge based on geographical area or an institution 
or profession, because they believe it increases their influence over local 
affairs. It could be said that - in local as well as national Government, and 
even though we are told we live in a "democracy 1 - whatever debate occurs 
in public is a facade that covers the disturbing truth that everything has 
been decided in advance. 

Freemasons are sworn to show favouritism in advancing the interests of 
brother Freemasons. The royal arch mason swears, "I will promote a 
companion royal arch mason's political preferment, in preference to 
another of equal qualifications" (pg.9, The Address of the US Anti-Masonic 
Convention, 1830.) Acacia. 

MASONS IN MEDICINE, EDUCATION, AND PUBLIC SERVICES 

Masonry in the medical profession is prevalent, especially among general 
practitioners and the more senior hospital doctors. Hospital Lodges prove 
useful meeting places for medical staff and administrators. Most main 
hospitals, including all the London teaching hospitals, have their own 
Lodges. According to Sir Edward Tuckwell, former Sergeant- Surgeon to the 
Queen, and Lord Porritt, Chairman of the African Medical and Research 
Foundations - both Freemasons and both consultants to the Royal 
Masonic Hospital - the Lodges of the teaching hospitals draw their 
members from hospital staff and GP's connected with the hospital in 
question. Tuckwell and Porritt are members of the Lodges attached to the 
teaching hospitals where they trained and later worked - Porritt at St 
Mary's Paddington (St Mary's Lodge No 63), which has about forty active 
members out of about a total 300, half of them general practitioners; and 
Tuckwell at St Bartholomew's (Rahere Lodge No 2546), with about thirty 
active brethren. Other London hospital Lodges include King's College (No 
2973); London Hospital, Whitechapel (No 2845); St Thomas's (No 142) and 
Moorfields (No 4949). 

Many of the most senior members of the profession are Freemasons, 
especially those actively involved with the Royal College of Physicians and 
the Royal College of Surgeons, which has benefited from a massive 
£600,000 trust fund set up by the Brotherhood for medical research. 



The royal arch mason swears, "I will aid and assist a companion royal arch 
mason, when engaged in any difficulty, and espouse his cause, so far as to 
extricate him from the same, if in my power, whether he be right or 
wrong.. .A companion royal arch mason's secrets, given me in charge as 
such, and I knowing him to be such, shall remain as secure and inviolable, 
in my breast as in his own, murder and treason not excepted, ". (pg.9, The 
Address of the US Anti-Masonic Convention, 1830). Acacia. 

Freemasonry plays a significant but possibly a declining role in the field of 
education. 

It is common for junior and secondary school headmasters and college 
lecturers to be 'Brothers'. There are as many as 170 Old Boys Lodges in 
England and Wales, most of which have current teaching staff among their 
members. 

The ambulance and fire services are strongly represented in Masonry, and 
there is a higher proportion of Prison Officers than Police Officers in the 
Brotherhood. Unlike the Police though, their is little fraternisation between 
the higher and lower ranks in the Prison Service. The senior officers of 
Prisons have their lodges, the "screws' theirs, and rare the twain shall 
meet. 

One premier London Lodge has, in a matter of years, completely changed 
its character due to an influx of prison officers from Wormwood Scrubs 
Prison. Lodge La Tolerance No 538, consecrated in 1847, until recently 
considered something of an elite Lodge, was in need of new members. One 
of the brethren knew a senior officer at the Scrubs who was interested in 
joining the Brotherhood, and it was agreed that he should be considered. 
The prison officer was interviewed and accepted into the Lodge. Such was 
the interest among the new initiate's colleagues that one by one the 
number of prison officers in Lodge La Tolerance increased. As more and 
more joined, so more and more older members left because they were 
unhappy with the changing character of the Lodge. Lodge No 538 is now 
dominated by prison officers from the Scrubs, where it is strongest in D 
Wing, the lifers' section. Claims throughout the service of Masonic 
favouritism are more common than in the police. Specific allegations 
investigated produce a picture of undeniable Masonic influence over 
appointments, contracts, and promotions, in many areas. 

One thing should be clear by now; the Brotherhood owns the law, they 
own the military, they own the oil companies, pharmaceutical companies, 
and just about everything which provides fuel for the status quo. It sets 
the standards for education, it sets the curriculum, it plants seeds via the 
media and education systems of what will later become, through tender 
nurturing power hungry, dissatisfied, spiritually unaware slaves to their 



system. If it was not so sinister it would be purely perfect in its all 
encompassing design. 

Masons might protest and point out the significant charitable acts done by 
the brotherhood. Millions for charity! But are millions significant compared 
to the sums that might be realised by the level of influence suggested. The 
Cali drug cartel in Columbia gave millions for charity as they pocketed 
billions. Like the Cali cartel, it might pay to invest a little for public 
relations purposes. Acacia. 

MASONIC INFLUENCES ON THE ABUSE OF ANIMALS 

Ancient institutions survive and hold sway in the City of London more 
than anywhere else in Britain. Although the City is one of the most 
important financial and business centres in the World, medieval custom 
and tradition are apparent everywhere. Once a year the Worshipful 
Company of Butchers presents the Lord Mayor with a boar's head on a 
silver platter, exactly as it did in the fourteenth century. At 10:30 each 
morning Tine wise men 1 set the world price of bullion in the opulent Gold 
Room of N.M. Rothchild and Sons, (the Rothchilds have been Freemasons 
for generations), but before these gentlemen are out of bed, the 
"gentlemen" from the Fishmongers Guild, their boots silvered with fish 
scales, are exercising their immemorial functions down by the river at 
Billingsgate, London's fish market. On the other side of the City, pre-dawn 
buyers eye hook-hung carcasses at Smithfields, the worlds largest 
dressed-meat market. It is the continuing belief in the importance of 
ancient tradition which is partly responsible for the undying strength of 
Freemasonry. 

Fox hunting - which is touted as being "traditional' but is actually not old 
enough to qualify as tradition - is merely one area of animal abuse where 
an example of basic Freemason connections can be seen. In the summer of 
1995, the Hunt Saboteurs Association put a request in their quarterly 
magazine, "HOWL", which read: 

WANTED: FREEMASONS 

If anyone has information on freemasons, i.e. details on individuals, where 
they are etc., the details will be useful and will be treated in the strictest 
confidence. Preferably details required on people connected in anyway 
with hunting, police forces, MP's etc. Also wanted any information on 
gentleman's clubs. All details will be of some use! If you can help... 
A response to this appeal featured in the winter 1995/ 96 issue of HOWL. It 
is reproduced here in full along with the editor's note which followed: 



Dear Sir 



I have noticed in the Summer issue No.58 of "The HOWL" a short piece 
asking for information about Freemasons. I would be very interested to 
know what the Hunt Saboteurs Association may have against 
Freemasonry. 

Let me tell you straight out that Freemasonry has absolutely nothing at all 
to do with hunting or any form of blood sport. To advertise for information 
about Freemasons in connection with hunting therefore makes as much 
sense as advertising for information about people who practise any other 
spare-time activity (which is all that Freemasonry is) such as pottery 
classes, cycling or going to car boot sales. 

If you want to know what Freemasonry is really about you are very 
welcome to write to me or visit Freemasons' Hall in London where we have 
a museum and an exhibition on the history of English Freemasonry. 

Yours Sincerely 

M.B.S. Higham 

Commander, Royal Navy 

Grand Secretary 

United Grand Lodge of England 

Freemasons' Hall 

Great Queen Street 

London WC25 5AZ. 

Ed's note - J ust one little question - if there aren't any connections 
between Freemasonry and bloodsports how ever did you manage to get 
your hands on a copy of HOWL ... ? Oh, and how do you account for the 
fact that the current Chairman of the Master of Foxhounds Association, 
Sir Michael Richardson (also J oint Master of the notorious Crawley and 
Horsham Foxhounds) is one of England's most senior and influential 
Freemasons? Interestingly he is wining and dining the Chief Constables of 
the Home Counties police forces at the moment! I wonder how we found 
that one out - research possibly? 

With Freemasons in significant positions within schools, colleges, 
universities, hospitals, the vivisection industry, pharmaceutical 
companies, the police, the legal profession, the prison service, insurance 

companies, local and national Govern ment(s), the Courts and 

inextricably linked with bloodsports, vivisection, animal farming it 

becomes easy to see why animal liberation activists such as Ronnie Lee, 
Keith Mann, and Dave Callender were given prison sentences of 10, 14, 
and 10 years respectively. 

One wonders whether the judges who tried and convicted Ronnie Lee, 
Keith Mann, and Dave Callender were members of the Brotherhood? And 
whether their decision was based upon their adherence to their Masonic 



principles, loyalties, and oaths? Were the detectives pursuing Lee, Mann, 
and Callender masons? Were the detectives form the Sussex police - Dl 
Gaylor and DCI Davies - who visited Mann in Full Sutton prison after his 
conviction masons? They wanted him to inform on animal liberation 
activists in the South of England who are supposedly committing criminal 
acts and getting away with it. They hinted that Mann would be arrested for 
actions in Sussex upon release if he did not help them. Mann is also aware 
that other inmates at HMP Full Sutton have been approached by police 
with tempting offers if they can get into his head. What about Lee's, 
Mann's, and Callender's legal representatives, were/ are they members of 
N the Square'? Can we be sure they only had their clients' interests at heart 
and carried out their legal matters professionally and without bias or 
prejudice? 

To those who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, and all 
that goes with it, anyone actively opposing animal abuse and fighting for a 
fair and free world for all is, ironically, regarded as an extremist and/ or 
terrorist. Specific laws and police departments are increasingly being 
directed at those groups and individuals who are being effective, legally or 
otherwise. For sometime, Scotland Yard has been home to ARNI - the 
Animal Rights National Index. This is a computer which collates 
intelligence on animal rights activists and activity. It contains the names, 
details, of thousands of people N who have committed or are suspected of 
having committed criminal offences'. However, it is not simply 
suspected/ convicted ALF activists that find themselves on ARNI. Hunt 
Saboteurs, those who frequent demonstrations, and even students 
studying animal welfare at university, will be amongst those listed. It is 
said that an equivalent has now been set up for Earth Liberation activists. 

On November 3, 1994, sections 68 and 69 of the Criminal J ustice and 
Public Order Act came into being. Within 48 hours Hunt Saboteurs had 
had 6 arrests. By February 1995, 95 Hunt Saboteurs had been arrested 
compared with 4 Road Protesters, 2 Tree Defenders, and 1 Traveller. 

Around this time it was reported that Scotland Yard's Anti-Terrorist 
Branch would be setting up a national police unit to target "animal rights 
extremists'. The report went on to say that, N the main task of the anti- 
terrorist detectives would be to bring to animal extremist cases their 
investigative skills, gathered over more than 20 years of tackling IRA and 
international terrorism'. 

On September 14, 1826 William Morgan, a stonemason living in Batavia, 
New York, was abducted by Freemasons in an attempt to stop the 
publication of his expose, "Illustrations of Freemasonry". His badly 
decomposed body was found roughly one year later in Oak Orchard 
Harbour and identified by his wife and dentist. The failure of the courts to 
effectively punish the perpetrators gave rise to a grassroots political 



movement concerned over the ability of Freemasons to obstruct justice, 
subvert the law, and manipulate the media. Acacia. 

MASONIC GOD 

The true name, although not the nature, of the Masonic God is revealed 
only to those Third Degree Masons who elect to be "exalted 1 to the Holy 
Royal Arch. The Royal Arch is often thought of as the Fourth Degree but 
the Fourth Degree is that of Secret Master. In fact the Royal Arch is an 
extension of theThird Degree, and represents the completion of the 
"ordeal 1 of the Master Mason. Only about one-fifth of all Master Masons are 
exalted. But even these, who are taught the "ineffable name' of the Masonic 
God, do not appreciate its true nature. This is basically because of 
deliberate obfuscation of the truth by some of those who know, and a 
general acceptance that everything is as they are told by most members of 
the Brotherhood. 

In the ritual of exaltation, the name of the Great Architect of the Universe 
is revealed as J AH-BUL-ON, not a general umbrella term open to any 
interpretation an individual Freemason might choose, but a precise 
designation that describes a specific supernatural being - a compound 
deity composed of three separate personalities fused in one. Each syllable 
of the "ineffable name 1 represents one personality of this trinity: 

J AH =J ahweh, the God of Hebrews 

BUL =Baal, the ancient Cameanite fertility god associated with 

"licentious rites of imitative magic 1 
ON =Osiris, the Ancient Egyptian god of the underworld. 

Baal was the "false god 1 with whom J ahweh competed for the allegiance of 
the Israelites in the Old Testament. But more recently, within a hundred 
years of the creation of the Freemason's God, the sixteenth century 
demonologist J ohn Weir identified Baal as a devil. This manifestation of 
evil had the body of a spider and three heads, those of a man, a toad, 
and a cat. 

In 1873, the renowned Masonic author and historian General Albert Pike, 
later to become Grand Commander of the Southern J urisdiction of the 
Supreme Council (of the 33rd Degree) at Charleston, USA, wrote of his 
reaction on learning of J ah-Bul-On. He was disquieted and disgusted by 
the name, and went on "No man or body of men can make me accept as a 
sacred word, as a symbol of the infinite and eternal Godhead, a mongrel 
word, in part composed of the name of an accursed and beastly heathen 
god, whose name has been for more than two thousand years an 
appellation of the Devil". 



Inside the Brotherhood, by Martin Short, carries on Stephen Knight's 
research into English Freemasonry and gives additional information on 
American Freemasonry. In it he suggests the racist Klu Klux Klan was 
created by American Freemasons around 1860 and revived in 1915 "by a 
new generation of Masons". He notes, "It seems that wherever Masons have 
common political aims, but cannot pursue them through Freemasonry, 
they set up parallel public movements" (p. 239, IB). Acacia. 

Against all this, the Church of England's Society for the Propagation of 
Christian Knowledge (SPCK) 

for example, even today carries no literature examining Freemasonry and 
discussing whether a Christian should be a mason. The SPCK issued a 
directive to their book shops that the book "Darkness Visible", probably 
still the most accurate and scholarly general work on the matter, should 
not be stocked. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the President of SPCK. 
The Archbishop of Canterbury responsible for banning this book was Dr 
Geoffrey Fisher - a Freemason of long standing. 

There is no doubt that Freemasonry is extremely anxious to have, or 
appear to have, good relations with all Christian Churches and, knowing 
that no serious Masonic scholar and no Christian theologian has been 
prepared to argue compatibility, the movement remains silent. There is 
evidence of very considerable efforts being made by Masons, including 
pressures on publishers, distributors, and libraries, to suppress works 
critical of the Brotherhood. This even extends to the Brotherhood's own 
publications. When the British Library applied in the normal way to 
Freemasons Hall for two copies of the Masonic Yearbook for the Reading 
Room in 1981, it was informed that it would not be permitted to have 
copies of the directory then or in the future. No explanation was given. 

There is a deliberate policy in operation within the English hierarchy of the 
Roman Catholic Church to keep its members in ignorance of the true 
standing of the Church on the question of Freemasonry. This policy is 
intended to cover up a huge mistake made by the English Catholic Bishops 
in 1974 which led to Catholics in Britain being informed that, after two 
hundred years of implacable opposition from Rome, the Holy See had 
changed its mind and that with the permission of their local Bishop 
Catholics could now become Freemasons. As well as covering up what can 
now be revealed as this blunder on the part of the English hierarchy, the 
wall-of-silence policy conceals, perhaps inadvertently, a more sinister 
situation in Rome. There is evidence that the Vatican itself is infiltrated by 
Freemasons. 

Freemasonry has many ranks or degrees and is rigidly hierarchical. Master 
Masons are "sworn to obey all the edicts, whims, etc., of those high and 
mighty grand sublime 



Sublimities" (pg.24, Masonic Salvation, Fred Husted, circa 1910) above 
them. Acacia. 

Betrayal of the Brotherhood is the worst crime possible in the eyes of its 
members and is ultimately punishable by death. 

The Brotherhood is all powerful: all top level members of the police and 
military forces are placed therethrough the Brotherhood as Brotherhood 
tools. J udges and lawyers, media moguls, businessmen, and politicians, 
are recruited so that no member of the Brotherhood elite is ever in danger 
of being held accountable by the System for any crime or misdemeanour. 
The Brotherhood can, and quite literally does, get away murder because it 
is also the law which opposes it. If a non- Brotherhood member should slip 
through the net and achieve high status then there are ways to ensure 
that such people are unable to achieve their full potential. It infiltrates 
every area of our society at all levels but at the top, in the highest social 
and monetary bracket, the Brotherhood prevails almost in total. 

While the first three degree Masons are raising money for charity and 
enjoying relatively harmless social events, their superiors in the Craft are 
organising wars, drug pushing, co-ordinating assassinations, mind- 
control, raping and murdering young children in Satanic abuse, and 
formulating plans for world domination. 

NEWS REPORTS 

December 9 1996 - Dunblane: 

....Meanwhile Frank Cook, Labour MP for Stockton, will attempt to raise 
questions in Parliament tomorrow about Thomas Hamilton's links with the 
Masons: "I feel there is cause for an enquiry into the relationship between 
the police and Thomas Hamilton." Specifically, he'll question the role of 
Central Scotland Police in allowing Hamilton to build up his arsenal of 
weapons and ammunition. (J ohn Cookson, Sky News). 

December 26 1996: 

Exactly how much power and influence is wielded by Freemasons has long 
been a source of controversy. The Police Complaints Authority has taken 
its view even though it recognises that suspicions about Masonic influence 
in the police may outweigh reality. 

PETER MOORHOUSE - CHAIRMAN, POLICE COMPLAINTS AUTHORITY: 

"Where there is, in the public's mind, a very strong belief that the Masonic 
order has many members within the police force, this is a very strong part 
of the belief of secrecy and that is what we're trying to remove". 



At one time as many as one in five officers in London was thought to be a 
mason. In the name of openness, Chief Constables now want a compulsory 
register of members. But the other representative organisations argue that 
police are being unfairly singled out. 

CHIEF SUPERINTENDENT BRIAN MACKENZIE - POLICE 
SUPERINTENDENTS' ASSOCIATION: 

"It's a nonsense to have the police registering if in fact you could have 
accusations against judges, for example, and prosecutors, who actually 
take the decisions on prosecuting which are far more serious than the 
police." 

Masons in the police are used to the charge that their first loyalty is to 
each other. The leadership's response is that masons know their duty to 
the law is paramount. The Metropolitan Commissioner has repeated advice 
against joining the masons, and though there is a lodge only a stones 
throw from here (outside New Scotland Yard) few senior officers are 
thought to be members. (SKY NEWS). 

December 26 1996: 

The Police Complaints Authority has called for officers to register their 
membership of organisations such as the Freemasons. The watchdog says 
it would help dispel the belief that some policemen put their loyalty to the 
brotherhood above their official duties. The Superintendents Association 
said they had no objections as long as J udges and Lawyers also came out 
into the open. 

The suggestion that there should be a legally binding public register of 
Mason officers has angered some members of the police and judiciary who 
feel it is unnecessary and irrelevant. 

The idea is being put forward by the Police Complaints Authority in its 
recommendation to MP's investigating the issue. While there's no evidence 
of abuse in the system, it's the public's perception of secret deals that's 
proving harmful. With an estimated 475,000 Freemasons in Britain, most 
members say such a notion is ludicrous: 

LORD J USTICE MILLETT- FREEMASON: "No earthly reason why a judge 
should favour somebody he doesn't know at all, just because he happens 
to be a member of a lodge which he has never been to, at the other end of 
the country, it's complete fantasy". 

There are nearly 9,000 lodges scattered across Britain. Members include 
police officers, judges, magistrates, prosecutors, criminals, and MP's, some 
of whom, it is alleged, sit on the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee 



which is examining the influence of Freemasons on the Criminal J ustice 
System to see if restrictions are required. (SKY NEWS).
